Tyson Fury Already Predicts Knockout Victory Over Dillian Whyte

The WBC heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (31-0-1, 22 KO’s) is a showman and understands the game of the sport is to keep the fans interested in wanting to see you fight. So, it comes as no surprise he called for the knockout victory during the press conference to promote the upcoming title defense against mandatory challenger Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte (28-2, 19 KO’s).


The fight took a little bit of time getting made as Whyte and his promoter Eddie Hearn were not happy with the proposed purse split of 80/20 in favor of the WBC champion. The WBC granted several extensions in hopes that both teams could agree on terms. Furthermore, the WBC agreed with Team Fury that the purse split would indeed be 80/20 before finally ordering a purse bid when both camps failed to come to financial terms.

Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren of Queensbury’s Promotions, won the purse bid by outbidding his rival in Hearn. It set the stage for the two fighters to meet and finally settle their differences. However, Whyte put the fight in jeopardy after taking too long to sign the contract. He waited until the very last minute before giving it his endorsement.


Now that the fight is scheduled to take place on April 23, it’s time for the promotional part of the sport. Whyte elected not to show up for the first press conference for some unknown reason, which means it was the Tyson Fury show.

These are the moments the WBC champion flourishes, talking about his greatness and legacy. He gave reporters a documentary’s worth of things to write about as he paraded on stage making it clear he is the best heavyweight of this era. Equally important, Fury not only made it clear that he was going to win via knockout, but he also said how long the fight would last.

“In a few years to come, people will be sitting back and thinking, ‘where were you on that night of 23 April 2022 when Tyson Fury smashed this fellow [Whyte] to pieces in front of the home fans in the UK?’

I know Dillian Whyte is going to come in prepared, and he’s going to come in rugged and rough and gamed and aggressive […] I just think that when I land the Lancaster bomber on his jaw, it’s going to be over. That could be in round one, and it could be in round six. I don’t see him going past them.”
